*It’s unfortunate that this CBP officer (and the others) who decided to take this route, by not only endangering himself and his family but he also tarnished the department by doing this. Greed is strong, but to ruin your life, and then going to prison to do the time, is just not worth it. imho.

**Great article, thank God for Jason. I hope that they can continue their work for the good of the Nation.

***A charter school tried it here, back a few years ago, and it didn’t fly. I just got back from early voting, and one of the candidates if for public education. She is the voice of reasoning, and for our kids, and teachers.

Gotta run, thank you, Joanne for a great post, and Furies too~

Rapid hiring surges would mean less vetting of those hired, perhaps even hiring people who are there by dint of being involved with drug cartels in the first place, or whose plan is to align with them for the money, period.
"So naturally, in this administration," within which unreason runs everything....  we are lucky, so far.
Sending still more money to the already wealthy is one of the tenets of the GOPIGGIES!

With Drumpf hiring the dregs of the swamp for his administration, it certainly is no surprise that the CBP is doing the same. The only thing they’re vetted for is expressing enough dislike of innocent “illegal” immigrants, not for whether they dislike aiding their truly criminal counterparts for a bribe.

Of course, JASON is not the dregs but the crème de la crème of scientists and this administration/Defense Department can’t be tainted with that, can it? Goodness forbids they should listen to some scientific sense instead of conspiracy theories and lies.

Privatization of most everything is the bane of capitalism gone over the top and sold by most right-wing governments as limiting government size and influence while in fact is is the way to increase the income of the 1%. In case of education it is also the way to indoctrinate and, indeed, undermine democracy. It is good to see that teachers see the dangers of privatization and are willing to strike for it.

The Furies have a lot to do this week: better vetting of recruited CBP agents (and not only on a weak spot for bribery, please), preventing the sacking of JASON next year and stopping this administration’s plans for further privatization of schools. Go for it, girls.
